Six Cu(II) complexes containing the NO2 donor tridentate asymmetrical aroylhydrazone ligand (E)-4-hydroxy-N′-((2-hydroxynaphthalen-1-yl)methylene)benzohydrazide (HL), namely, [Cu(L)Cl]·2H2O (1), [Cu(L)(CH3OH)2]·NO3 (2), [Cu(L)(NO3)(H2O)]·H2O (3), [Cu(L)(CH3OH)Cl]·CH3OH (4), [Cu(L)(SCN)(DMF)]·DMF (5) and {[Cu(L)(4,4′-bipy)]ClO4·4DMF}n (6) have been synthesized and analysized by x-ray singal crystal diffraction. The structures of 1–6 are varied from zero-dimensional (0D) mononuclear complex to one-dimensional (1D) polymer based on the control of solvents, anions or auxiliary ligands, which can occupy the open coordination sites of Cu(II). Different hydrogen bonding interactions can also be observed in these complexes.
